  2. Oh SNAP! So glad this is back for another year! Two great team captains. Both great guys over there at Cobra... I'd have a hard time picking one to root for. Good luck to all those who apply, this is such a great experience if you have the time for it. Just put your flame suits on... if you thought the guy from Boston was annoying last year....

  3. Couldn't like this post and all of the replies enough! Getting Chad and Yagley involved is going to be epic, on top of the Tour MIMs being available this year. Hands down, best summer ever playing golf was last year during #CC4. Can't wait to follow along. We need some alumni challenges!

  6. For those of you lucky enough to be selected, this is not just about you playing golf for A summer and getting a free set of clubs. this is about you representing the greatest golf community online, an incredible Golf Company, as well as your family and friends.. As any of the Alumni will attest, your friends and family get invested also. My wife was asking what the competitions were weekly, when was i going to play.. Did I get my posts in Hell she almost got into it more than I did.. Friends were making tee times and calling to see if I was able to play, as well as Making sure I played

  7. Ohh Boy! Last years Cobra Connect Challenge is what got me to join MGS. I didn't get selected, but am still very happy I joined. Also, by following along with the results last year I must say that MSG did a good job NOT picking me for that challenge as at that time I would not have had enough time to do it justice. Now knowing that and knowing my current schedule would still not be open enough I hope to follow along and wish the best to the chosen people! Maybe next year I'll throw my hat in the ring again!

  8. To answer a couple of those questions. For Cobra Connect, we always try to make sure all areas of the country are open and in playable weather when picks are made. I think one year maybe 2 or 3 we misjudged by a bit and left some areas out. This year we announced a bit earlier knowing the selection process was going to take a bit longer due to the format change and also to allow for any delays in product that Cobra might have. Although they think they will be in good shape for this. Sorry for not holding to our normal timeframe of announcing the same week entries

  12. Not only do they provide the equipment, they actually want to solicit feedback and engage with the competitors. We had multiple conference calls with Yagley, Chad, and others on the Cobra team. As the product engineers they genuinely cared about our thoughts and comments. From the changes they made in the RadSpeed line some of those suggestions may have been taken to heart. I'm not saying we caused the changes, but a lot of the feedback we provided seems to have made its way into their newest products. They were also accessible throughout the contest (as much as possible, with COVID and t

  14. Sadly, I wish I was joking. MGS, it pains me to have to be the one to deliver this news, but it appears the results of CC4 are now under scrutiny. It turns out that @B.Boston was illegally lowering the compression of his golf balls during play, the technical/Boston term is “deflating.” Additionally, it seems he was also secretly making video recordings of his competitors pre-round range sessions, the technical/Boston term being walk-throughs. When asked “how can you sleep at night?” @B.Bostononly responded “it’s wicked hard.” More to come as this story unfolds.

  15. The Grand Pappy of forum testing, the big one... my aging heart can barely take it. With my new sticks soon to be arriving (had to go back to builder, long story, don't want to talk about it ) I really don't have the time this contest/equipment review warrants and deserves. But, I'll definitely be following along and looking to select the winning tester. Maximus rotation is still a key skill but the staff at Team Fix will be looking for some other TBA attributes . Good luck to all the applicants. Let the games, smack talk, and gif-a-thon commence

  18. I like the sound of these alumni challenges!! In all seriousness, before anyone applies for this you need to be sure you can commit enough time to do it justice. It's a lot of hard work with a huge amount of expectation placed on you. The rewards for that work are huge and totally worth it though . I wonder who's name will join the likes of @fozcycle, @Bucky CC and some guy from some strange town full of second rate teams...

  20. Nunfa0 us correct....this is a season long commitment that requires a ton of work, some ingenuity and a lot of humor. As The Godfather of Cobra Challenges, I have once again thrown my hat into the ring. I hope MGS makes me an offer I can’t refuse.

  21. Gonna start this puppy off right. One of my favorite replies in the “testers wanted” thread for CCC4 was @sirchunksalotpost of who he thought each of the testers represented and was just an awsome post. well we clearly don’t know testers but I’m starting off the memes right. In celebration of a “vs” war let’s take a look at some of our historical matchups. Will we have a real David and Goliath situation of teams? Hopefully no stones are thrown.... Maybe a real Tyson vs Holyfield situation? No ear biting people, let’s keep it civil yea? for all us gamers, a long

  25. This is an incredible opportunity from MGS and Cobra! As the overall winner of the Original Cobra Connect Challenge I would LOVE to be included in the 5th Annual competition!! as you can see from my signature I’m still rocking the clubs I won from the first version of this challenge that only included the driver. That year I drove hundreds of miles to play golf so I could fulfill my obligation to MGS and Cobra after Hurricane Harvey closed almost every course in The Houston area at some point (my home course was closed for 4 months) In some ways I think being a part of the Cobra

  27. It's absolutely crazy how good the testing season is starting out here on the forum! I would like to say thank you to both MyGolfSpy and Evnroll for allowing 4 testers give a thorough and honest review of these putters. Good luck to everyone applying!

  28. Dang. Two tests in a row that are tempting for the golden ticket, but too similar to my gamers to pull the trigger. Plus I just went out and bought a second EVNRoll two weeks ago "just to try it out" turns out I should've waited and tested the new line.

  32. Thank you, I am just like all of the fellow applicants very hopeful, I know the odds of getting picked with so many great candidates, but in the end of the day, whether I am one of the competitors or not, I am absolutely thrilled about Cobra and MGS once again holding this competition and kicking it up a notch.

In order to keep things a bit more organized I will scrub the thread of past posts pertaining to other submissions and only leave relevant comments visible.

  34. Yes, the talks with the Cobra team are one of the most underrated parts of the event. It was so cool to talk about the equipment and give both the good and bad to some of the people who actually work on it. I'd like to personally take credit (I admit it, they probably had it coming long before I mentioned it, but it's still cool it happened) for them bringing out the snakebite in 48* since I might have mentioned that I'd love a MIM Black in that loft about... 2 or 100 times in our ending call. I just have to go give it a swing and compare against the forged tec GW. There's still some

  35. Last year was truly awesome. I know all the competitors had an absolute blast and we had quite a range of stats between us. I want to say there was a 20ish point handicap range difference between us but the competition rounds were handicapped to make things fair. It is a lot of work, but it’s entirely worth it!

  37. This is officially my favorite time of the year, the announcement of the Cobra Connect Challenge! A big thank you goes out to MyGolfSpy and Cobra for hosting the mega event of the year here on the forum. Did I mention this is my favorite time of the year? Good luck to everyone applying, I know the mods and Cobra will pick the right competitors and this will be a fun follow. I'm not going to throw my hat in the ring this year. Work is about to get crazy and I won't have the time to put in the commitment this great event requires. It'll still be a fun ride, heckling and ro

  45. Thanks for answering those! I think I speak for most of us in saying please do not be sorry for taking time with the announcement. Considering there were 4400+ entries, several other tests going on and a new process we can all understand that the mods and team want to make the proper selection for this. We may just be here hitting refresh every 30 seconds or less, but we know you are working hard in the background to get it all done properly.

  46. I think cobra is unique in wanting to engage the forum year after year for this. While it would be cool to have other companies do similar things, I think we have to realize that it’s not going to happen. The MGS mods do a great job of lining up forum testing opportunities year after year. Companies like titleist, who never really engaged golf forums for testing, are now testing products via members of the MGS forum. However only Cobra has decided to support forum testing at this level year after year. And I feel that goes under appreciated. While I have enjoyed following the CC in
